Hosted by

London was quiet today, but looting and violence spread to other parts of the country. We hear different opinions about the causes of Britain's worst riots in decades, and ask how this week's civil disturbing might affect next year's Olympic Games. Also, the so-called "Super Committee" on deficit reduction is rounded out with House Minority Leader Pelosi's picks, and The Help, a new film that looks back at blacks and whites in Mississippi during the 1960’s.
